Emergency Food List
Natural disasters can keep you trapped at home for long
periods of time. You may be stranded in your home without electricity or
fresh water. You should keep an food locker stocked with emergency
foods to keep you healthy until the disaster has passed.

Emergency Food Tips
Buy small size containers or individually packaged food items.
Buy foods that are nutritious but don't necessarily taste good so you
won't be tempted to break into your food locker when your
daily supplies are running low or to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Check your food locker regularly. Don't keep foods passed
their expiration dates.
Pack a separate food container for your car.
Keep emergency supply kits and equipment such as flashlights, fresh
batteries, candles, matches, blankets, first aid kits and any other
supplies you may need.
Emergency Food In The Car
Food that you keep in your car should be sufficient
to last 3 days (minimum).
Emergency Food In The Home
Food supplies in your home should be
sufficient to last two weeks (minimum). Your food supply should
include a variety of prepared foods, meals ready to eat (MRE),
canned meats, canned fruits, canned vegetables, grains, canned milk
products, soup and water.
If an earthquake, hurricane, winter storm, or other disaster strikes your
community, you might not have access to food, water, and electricity for days or
even weeks. By taking some time now to store emergency food and water supplies,
you can provide for your entire family.
As you stock food, take into account your family's unique needs and tastes.
Familiar foods are important. They lift morale and give a feeling of security in
times of stress. Try to include foods that they will enjoy and that are also
high in calories and nutrition. Foods that require no refrigeration, water,
special preparation, or cooking are best.
During and after a disaster, it is vital that you maintain your strength.
Remember the following: w Eat at least one well-balanced meal each day. w Drink
enough liquid to enable your body to function properly (two quarts or a half
gallon per day). w Take in enough calories to enable you to do any necessary
work. w Include vitamin, mineral, and protein supplements in your stockpile to
ensure adequate nutrition.
